Premenstrual syndrome and menopausal (and perimenopausal) hormonal changes which cause a constellation of symptoms, are often treated successfully by our office.
Chiropractic health care, along with nutrition and some fitness, has been shown to lessen the discomfort of the monthly menstrual period and chronic pelvic pain. This type of treatment can be life-changing for some women.
Gentle chiropractic care is being used to help women who suffer from the intense PMS discomfort.
A thorough, in depth chiropractic examination and a special X-ray of a PMS-prone woman’s lower spine can often show the structural problems involving the female’s lumbar nerves which are the nerves that supply her ovaries and uterus.
Gentle chiropractic manipulation, especially just prior to the menstrual cycle, can help relieve the discomfort of the premenstrual tension syndrome.
A specific chiropractic adjustment has been proven to change hormone levels quite rapidly, thereby relieving menstrual cramps, PMS, and menopausal symptoms.
The core philosophy of chiropractic care is that all health issues with the human body are related to the spinal column, specifically misalignments of the vertebrae. These misalignments, called subluxations, can place pressure on the nerves leading in and out of the spinal column that serve as signaling pathways between the brain and the various organs, joints, and muscles of the body.
Subluxations can occur for a number of reasons, such as poor posture, age, illness, or injury. Pressure on the nerves leading in and out of the spinal column can result in faulty signaling, which may result in many of the symptoms that come along with PMS.
Regular chiropractic care can help relieve both the physical and emotional issues that come along with those few days before a woman starts her period.
